plus success equals one massive right wing freakout. president obama's health care law is working. and many on the right just can't handle it. here's what i'm talking about. >> well, nelson mandela stood up against a great injustice and was willing to pay a huge price for that. that's the reason he's mourned today because of that struggle he performed. but you're right. what he was advocating for was not necessarily the right answer, but he was fighting against some great injustice. and i would make the argument that, you know, we have a great injustice going on in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that is taking over and controlling people's lives. and obama care is front and center in that. >> yes. he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting apartheid. rick santorum doesn't have to like the health care law, but he's a former u.s. senator. does he really think it compares to government-backed racial segregation. but this is the ugliest we've seen from comparing the law that saves lives to hurricane katrina to saying the law was terrorizing the

yourself. check out how not to get hacked on "cnn money." >>> the obama care fiasco is down right absurd. the administration says the health care.gov website is fixed so logon and apply if -- if you're one of the first 50,000 people on the site. if not, get in line. and the government is going to send you an e-mail telling you a better time to sign up. imagine doing holiday shopping on a site like amazon. you mow what you want. you can't buy it until other people complete their purchases. would you stick around and wait for amazon to send you an e-mail waiting on you to come bark and buy something? how about your fantasy football team. see how you're fairing on a sunday afternoon, right? no, come back at midnight and the site will send you the e-mail. it kind of reminds me of this, remember this? logging on, verifying user name and password, connecting, that's what this feels like. what's the big deal? a little patience never hurt anyone, right? wrong. obama care is different. it won't work if young americans don't sign up. technology gives young people the luxury of instant everything.

the whole idea of obama care, right, and who famously, the citizens of kentucky have reaped the benefit. kentucky now leads the nation in new sign-ups for health insurance, and that would be huge anywhere. it is a particularly huge deal for a state whose population is as unhealthful as kentucky's is. i don't mean any offense by it, but kentucky's population ranks at the bottom or toward the bottom of the nation's health ratings in lots and lots and lots of different categories, and kentucky has a lot of uninsured people. and it's the exact same deal two states over in mississippi, but in these two states, in the same part of the country, with the same health problems in their populations and a lot of the same challenges, one of them, kentucky, is now best in the nation in terms of people getting health insurance, and one of them, mississippi, is now worst in the nation, and not because they wouldn't know how to fix their problem. they knew how to fix their problem, but they stopped fixing it. mississippi has enrolled a smaller percentage of its population than any other state in the nat
